Frocktails: Primary Pineapple

Cinco de Mayo is coming up, which means it's margarita time! I tried out a pineapple margarita, and it turned out light and frothy and in such a beautiful shade. Use fresh pineapple, it makes all the difference.

This colorblock dress from ModCloth is simple and summery. I love the primary color combination and how light and breezy it is. Perfect for the hot days and margarita sipping that summer will bring.

Pineapple Margarita
Recipe adapted from Serious Eats

2 oz. tequila, silver or gold
3 oz. orange liqueur, I used PatrĂ³n CitrĂ³nge
1 cup fresh, ripe pineapple, cut into chunks
2 oz. lime juice
1 oz. simple syrup
4 ice cubes

Add tequila, liqueur, pineapple, lime juice and simple syrup to a blender with 4 ice cubes. Blend until smooth and frothy. Pour into a pitcher if desired and refrigerate up to 3 hours. Salt rim of glass and garnish with pineapple. Serve cold or over ice. Serves two.
